BREAKING: DSS Arrests EFCC Acting Chairman, Ibrahim Magu

6 Jul

Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Ibrahim Magu, has been arrested by the Department of State Services.

He was arrested at the Wuse II office of the DSS on Monday afternoon and is now undergoing interrogation at the DSS Headquarters In Aso Drive.

The DSS in a 2016 report revealed that Magu was living in a N40m mansion.

“In December 2010, the Police Service Commission (PSC) found Magu guilty of action prejudicial to state security – withholding of EFCC files, sabotage, unauthorised removal of EFCC files and acts unbecoming of a police officer, and awarded him severe reprimand as punishment. 

“Magu is currently occupying a residence rented for N40m at N20m per annum. This accommodation was not paid [for] from the commission’s finances, but by one Umar Mohammed, air commodore retired, a questionable businessman who has subsequently been arrested by the secret service.

“For the furnishing of the residence, Magu enlisted the Federal Capital Development Authority to award a contract to Africa Energy, a company owned by the same Mohammed, to furnish the residence at the cost of N43m.

“Investigations show that the acting EFCC chairman regularly embarked on official and private trips through a private jet owned by Mohammed.

“In one of such trips, Magu flew to Maiduguri alongside Mohammed with a bank MD who was being investigated by the EFCC over complicity in funds allegedly stolen by the immediate past petroleum minister, Diezani Alison-Madueke. 

“Furthermore, the EFCC boss has so far maintained a high-profile lifestyle. This is exemplified by his preference for first-class air travels. On 24 June, 2016, he flew Emirate airlines first-class to Saudi Arabia to perform lesser hajj at the cost of N2.9m. This is in spite of Mr President’s directive to all public servants to fly economy class.
“Magu has fostered a beneficial relationship with Mohammed who by his confession approaches clients for possible exploitation, favours and associated returns,” the DSS report said.
Magu is yet to be confirmed as the substantive chairman of the EFCC despite occupying the position in acting capacity for many years.

Hushpuppi, Woodberry Extradited To United States After Arrest In Dubai

2 Jul

Raymond Igbalode Abbas widely known as ‘Hushpuppi’ and his accomplice in Internet fraud, Olalekan Jacob Ponle known as ‘Woodberry’, have been extradited to the United States after their arrest in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, in June.

The disclosure was made in a statement by the Dubai Police on Thursday in which the US Federal Bureau of Investigations extended its gratitude to the UAE crime watchdog for its role in apprehending and extraditing the two suspects.

Hushpuppi, Woodberry and 10 others were arrested in an operation tagged ‘Fox Hunt’ after they were accused of “committing crimes outside the UAE, including money-laundering, cyber fraud, hacking, criminal impersonating, scamming individuals, banking fraud and identity theft,” the Dubai Police, said.

Director of Dubai CID, Brigadier Jamal Salem Al Jallaf, said that the raid that led to his arrest resulted in the confiscation of incriminating documents of a planned fraud on a global scale worth $435 million.

“The team also seized more than $40.9 million in cash, 13 luxury cars with an estimated value of $6.8 million obtained from fraud crimes, and confiscated 21 computer devices, 47 smartphones, 15 memory sticks, five hard disks containing 119,580 fraud files as well as addresses of 1,926,400 victims,” he said.-

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: Oluwo Of Iwo Faces Dethronement After Criminal Past Of Monarch Deported By US Government For Fraud In 1999 Emerges

26 Jun

The Oluwo of Iwoland, Oba Abdulrasheed Akanbi, is facing one of his toughest times on the throne as his subjects have not only turned against him but also demanded his immediate dethronement over various infractions.

In a letter to the Osun State Government dated June 17, 2020, the Association of Iwoland Indigenes in Diaspora through their lawyer, Peter Adeosun, raised a number of allegations against the monarch, calling for his removal for gross abuse of office.

They said Oba Akanbi’s character did not befit a person of his status and calibre as he always moved around with armed thugs, miscreants and hoodlums to harass, intimidate, molest and attack persons whom he perceives as enemies. 

“Your Excellency, it is our brief as evidenced by various correspondences made available to us by our clients that Oluwo Abdulrasheed Akanbi has been conducting himself in manners which are antithetical to that of a monarch in any clime and very unbecoming of a Yoruba Oba.

“It is therefore disheartening to our clients that the Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdulrasheed Akanbi (hereinafter referred to as Oba Akanbi), a Yoruba king who is supposed to be the custodian of Iwo culture and values has been misrepresenting the interest of Iwoland and this is becoming rather shameful,” the lawyer wrote to the state governor.

DOCUMENTS: Letter to the Osun State Government by Sahara Reporters on Scribd

One of the youngest monarchs in Nigeria today, Oba Akanbi has not been very far away from controversies since ascending the throne of Iwoland in 2016.

Shortly after being installed as king, Oba Akanbi declared himself an emperor and proclaimed Iwo as an empire.

In July of that year, he visited Okerewe, Ile Ife, where he declared that every Yoruba man with ancestral connection to Ile Ife could aspire to become the Ooni of Ife.

That same month, Oba Akanbi raised some dust after he bypassed the Chief Imam of Iwo to lead prayers during the Eid-Fitri celebration of that year.

In March 2018, the 48-year-old declared himself as an emir – after Northern traditional rulers – whom he says do not begrudge each other unlike the Yoruba obas.

In February this year, Oba Akanbi allegedly physically attacked another monarch, Agbowu of Ogbaagbaa, Oba Dhirulahi Akinropo, over a land dispute.

The incident reportedly took place at the office of the Assistant Inspector-General of Police, Zone 11, Osogbo, Bashir Makama.

The incident led to the suspension of Oba Akanbi for six months by the Osun State Council of Traditional Rulers.

Before his marriage with his wife, Chanel Chin, crashed in December 2019, Oba Akanbi put a crown on her head, emerging the first Yoruba monarch in recent times to do so.

Chin, who is from Jamaica but based in Canada, disclosed that Oba Akanbi forced her into marrying him after raping her during a visit to Nigeria in February 2016.

“When I met Oluwo, February 2, 2016, he raped me and because he raped me, the next day, he said to me, ‘we’re going to the palace, we’re going to Iwo and I’ll make you queen. So I went with him.

“The very next day, when we got to Iwo, there was no palace. There was even a family that came, they were so upset because Oluwo disvirgined one girl from that town and promised that family marriage. So, when that family got to find out one Canadian was with this King, he went to the news.

“He started sleeping around with a lot of women, from Lagos to Iwo to Osogbo, to Ibadan. He was sleeping with a lot of women and promising them Olori.

“When people found out that there was one Jamaican woman living with him, he went to the press and put this fake news about his wife from Canada, that he married me in Canada and that I came to Nigeria to claim my rightful spot, which was a lie,” Chin said after they separated in December 2019.

The Aunt of the late 5 year old KADIJA is the mother of the RAPIST and they were living in the same house.

The Rapist first raped the elder sister of KADIJA (8yrs old) and the aunt undisclosed it to the parents of the girl.

She treated the girl.

The Rapist then raped the 5 year old KADIJA.

The aunt also undisclosed it to the parents.

She tried to treat the girl but to no avail.

According to what I gathered from the father’s family (SACCOH) of the late girl, the aunt only informed them about the death of the girl and she wanted to lay her to rest but the father insisted that he wanted to know the cause of the death.

He then urged his family to take the corpse for a postmortem.

The postmortem result showed that the girl was raped.

The father also instructed his family to take the 8yrs old girl for a checkup.

It was also discovered that the boy has Vaginated her.

What the aunt undisclosed from the parents came out public.

The family of the father reported the matter to the Police.

Both the Rapist and his mother (the aunt of KADIJA) have been arrested and they’re currently under Police custody.

The aunt of KADIJA is the elder sister of KADIJA’s mother (same dad & mum)

Akwa Ibom APC suspends youth Caucus chairman

22 Jun
Image may contain: 1 person, beard and closeup

Following the decision of One-quarter of officers of the APC Youth Caucus on Sunday, June 21, we hereby announce the indefinite suspension of Mr. Iniobong John as Chairman of the Caucus.

The decision follows the will of the Caucus to purge itself of the many misgivings of the erstwhile Caucus Chairman and to restore the confidence of the public in the Caucus and by extension, the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Akwa Ibom State.

At the meeting where the suspended Chairman was invited but declined attendance, the Caucus appointed Mr. Godwin Jarkwa as the Acting Chairman, pending when the election into offices will be due.

It would be recalled that the bearer, Iniobong John has been the fore of our public utterances in recent times, owing to his selfish and unholy marriage with bigwigs in and outside the Party whom he goes about using the name and office of the Youth Caucus to defraud, and other things which are inimical to the principles of the establishment of the group.

May we state here that the APC Youth Caucus was never created as an appendage of the NDDC or as a partisan to any politician within and outside the Party, but as a medium to reward youths and attract benefits to members of the Caucus who worked tirelessly for the emergence of President Muhammadu Buhari, through the negotiation of tangible benefits.

Whereas, Stakeholders of the Caucus have watched keenly the crooked activities of Iniobong John (which include and is not limited to going to politicians’ houses to beg for money, blackmail and threats to attack them and also bargaining the amount of money to be collected for them to be spared), and have warned him severally to desist from such without a change from him, we find it within the provision of the Caucus Bye-law to suspend him indefinitely.

The interim Chairman, Godwin Jarkwa is to report directly to the State Youth Leader of the Party without any form of partisanship or bias to any person or organization except as determined and agreed by a one-quarter of the Caucus.

We call on members of the public to note this suspension as anyone who transacts any business with Iniobong John henceforth, does so at their risk. Whatever comes from him forthwith remains his personal opinion and not a product of the APC Youth Caucus.

While Mr. Godwin Jarkua now acts as Chairman of the Caucus, proper communication regarding election into offices shall be made known in due course.
